SINGAPORE: In Jurong East, residents living close to Block 275 Toh Guan Road are complaining of a foul smell coming from the trees nearby.
Some residents living on the higher floors are suspected of throwing their rubbish bags out of their homes, with the litter landing on the nearby trees.
Removing the litter is no easy task as the trees are quite tall.
"Some bags have been hanging there for a whole year," said one resident.
"Maybe they can install a camera or something to catch the culprits," said another.
In the last five years, the Housing and Development Board (HDB) said 20 people had been arrested in cases involving killer litter.
Last year alone, the HDB said there were seven cases involving killer litter.
Those convicted could face a fine or jail sentence of up to two years, or even have their flat forcibly acquired by HDB.
